Fabrik started life in 2011 as a simple bunch of tools to produce portfolio websites for friends. The product went through several beta stages before becoming an actual product that people could use. Due to it’s initial customer base (and two of it’s founders working in film) the product’s core audience is, and remains, filmmakers. Development to this point has been bootstrapped and influenced through a bespoke service building highly-tailored themes for best-of-breed film and tv production companies on the Fabrik platform. In 2014, with a new, fully-focussed team, the product was evolved towards absolute simplicity as a user experience, and is now quickly moving into the development of intelligent systems and algorithms that work in perfect harmony with user content.
